    Some bloatwares should be removable without needing root. The biggest bloat (MIUI :lol: ) can be removed after unlocking bootloader and/or rooting the phone. Check XDA or Miui forum for the detailed procedure.

    Tried to search at XDA but no result.
    Will Rooting void warranty for this phone ?

    No luck yet.
    May be because its a new model or may be no one interested in low end mobile.
    Should have bought popular mobile like Redmi Note 4... :(

    Rooting voids warranty but if it changes the splash screen while the phone boots up or the service center people somehow detects it but so far of all of the phones I've rooted everyone of them :D and all of them were under 10k budget phones.

    Other than this with a rooted phone some apps like banking and aadhar based ones may not work though this can be fixed by xposed but that's another thing.

    You can try Kingroot ( roots most cheap phones ) but be advised it may steal data ( not sure through ), throw up some notifications sometime about downloading this app and another, play service may throw up some warning sometimes but so far my usage with this app never had any adverse effect. Another thing is you may be unable to remove this even after a factory reset.

    But rooting gives you great control over your phone. It's like taking the Red pill in Matrix ;)

    Found at some placed(web result) that Xiaomi is exception.
    But not for custom roms.
    But,I'm not 100% sure.
    I totally noob regarding smart phone so gonna wait until some one root(Y1 Lite) successfully and publish tutorial on the web.

    There are some guides on the internet and all of them are suggesting to use Kingroot ( Without Pc ) but tthe phone can be rooted using a pc as well :
    How To Root Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite With/Without PC - Shubham Raj

    You can bite the bullet or wait for more trustworthy post as rooting may soft brick a device.

    Thanks!
    I don't know why but I'm feeling that the battery is draining fast.
    It's not sufficient even for a day.

    Remove facebook, snapchat and other battery hogging apps. Use greenify to hibernate all apps.
